§ LORD ERNEST BRUCE
asked the First Commissioner of Works, Whether there is any prospect of Her Majesty's Government being shortly enabled to remove the Life Guards' Barracks from Hyde Park to some other situation, so as to widen the important thoroughfare of Knightsbridge, and thus confer a great boon on the public, especially on that important and constantly increasing district of the Metropolis?
LORD HENRY LENNOX
, in reply, said, he was afraid he could give no other 1423 Answer to the Question of his noble Friend than that which was given on the same subject in "another place" last week. The question of the Knightsbridge Barracks was under the consideration of the Government; but even if they should disappear, his noble Friend must not be too confident as to the space being used for the purpose of widening the road to Kensington, as other interests would interfere which might still withhold from his noble Friend the boon he now sought.
